Orlando, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Williams Umansky, founder of The Umansky Law Firm and criminal defense attorney, received the prestigious Avvo ‘Top Contributer’ Award for his efforts in discussing criminal defense matters extensively to those in need.
Avvo.com was designed to assist people in finding experienced and competent legal advice. Avvo outlines in their company history that their desire was to show the client how to consider specific points on a lawyer’s resume such as education, years of experience, history, board certification, professional achievements and career recognition.
The primary purpose of Avvo is to assist in evaluating information and knowledge with guidance and direction. The website includes all licensed professionals, and Avvo has developed the Avvo Rating System, which assigns a number according to the lawyers’ qualifications.
“I am proud to answer questions for consumers who look for answers to their legal questions concerning criminal cases,” Attorney Umansky said. “Avvo is a great resource and I am glad to take the time to give people the information they need.”
The Umansky Law Firm also gives free consultations, which typically offers similar advice to the advice on Avvo, but more in-depth.
According to Attorney Umansky, “More often than not, people find themselves searching for competent legal help while they are going through the most confusing times. Whether they don’t have an attorney or they have other issues that need immediate attention, it can be difficult to evaluate and understand the information that they do find.”
The mission for Avvo is to answer legal questions and to assist people in a clear and comprehensive method of finding the legal help that they need.
Mark Britton, found of Avvo, chose the name Avvo from the Italian word “avvocato" because the concept originated while he was working in Italy. Avvo’s success in helping consumers locate experienced legal answers is based on the principle that the information is necessary to make informed decisions. Avvo helps the people in finding the right licensed professional for their needs.
